All three original PNR hosts are back for the episode that almost wasn't. Data corruption strikes again and we nearly lost the entire episode. Fortunately SofaBear was able to recover and piece together enough audio to form a slightly short episode, although the lack of context in sections can border on complete non-sequitur at times as we discuss: classic television, ridiculous comic book technology, 80's children shows that haven't been made into movies yet, SofaBear doesn't quite understand Quantum Leap, and good ol' star trek talk.

Awesome Games Done Quick 2014

Hey PNR fans! 2014 is just starting to get into gear and that means it's time for Awesome Games Done Quick 2014 (AGDQ). Every year Speed Demos Archive and Speed Runs Live join forces to raise money for charity by speedrunning games for a week strait, this year from January 5th - 11th. This year, as in years past, AGDQ will be raising money for the Prevent Cancer Foundation. This is a great organization to donate to and they will receive 100% of the donations from AGDQ. In their own words "The mission of the Prevent Cancer Foundation is saving lives through cancer prevention and early detection. The Prevent Cancer Foundation advocates and supports the early detection of cancer through Research, Education, and Community Outreach" We here at Play Nemesis Radio did a little research and found the Prevent Cancer Foundation to be a very worthy charity with less than 10% of their funding spent on management and general costs and over 90% of their funding spent on their Program and Fundraising*. You can donate to Awesome Games Done Quick 2014 by heading over to http://gamesdonequick.com/ and clicking on the "Donate" button. Be sure to check out their donation tracker to learn how to win sweet prizes such as a Legend of Zelda Inspired Golden Green Hylian Crest . Or if you don't have a PayPal account feel free to contact SofaBear (sofabear@playnemesis.com) and we can organize a donation on your behalf. Let's start the new year right by giving cancer a kick in the pants!
